The Master of Project Management is a forward thinking, interdisciplinary course that integrates the knowledge needed to manage projects and programs across multiple sectors. The course focuses on developing specialist expertise in organising the project function utilising a diverse vocational skill set. It encourages an evidentiary and interdisciplinary approach to critical thinking and problem solving, strengthened by a capacity to undertake research. You will choose from a range of discipline-specific electives (covering IT, Business, Engineering and Law) and have the opportunity to work on real-life projects where theory and practice are applied to problems situated in local and international, corporate, government and social contexts. Where will a career in project management take you? As a graduate you will be strongly placed to provide strategic project leadership in a wide range of settings, such as business delivery, IT developments, engineering solutions, in both the corporate, government and not-for-profit sectors.
The degree is tailored for flexibility and caters to your previous experience, with the option to study part-time or full-time. You can focus on one discipline or select from a range of discipline-specific regulation-orientated electives in the areas of: banking and financial services; sustainability and the environment; employment and human resources; global enterprise; artificial intelligence and new technologies; and ethics and risk management. You also have the opportunity to apply your knowledge practically through an international study tour or corporate project.
